Stranger Pays For Family’s Dinner At Pizza Hut Because Parenting Ain’t Easy

While not every parent can come prepared with things like goodie bags to apologize in advance for any bad behavior their kids may exhibit, that doesn’t mean that they’re not going to try their best to make sure their children don’t act out in public. One single mom was rewarded for the not always easy effort of parenting when a stranger visited a random act of kindness upon her family. [More]

Pizza Hut Believes It’s “Re-Inventing The Stuffed Crust Experience” By Using 3 Kinds Of Cheese

There’s only so much you can do with a pizza before it becomes something that doesn’t even resemble a pizza — there’s a fine line between novelty food and monstrosities like the cheeseburger crust creation. But things like sauce, crust and cheese are pretty safe bets, so far as widespread appeal goes, which is perhaps why Pizza Hut is tripling down on the dairy and introducing a 3-Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza.

Real-Life Cheeseburger Pizza Sightings In UK Rather Disappointing

Yesterday, we shared the news that the grease-filled sunflower known as the Cheeseburger Pizza made its way from Pizza Hut Middle East to Pizza Hut UK.

Almost a year and a half ago, the unholy spawn of a pizza and a platter of cheeseburger sliders arrived in Pizza Hut outlets in the Middle East. It’s a stuffed-crust pizza, but with little mozzarella-topped burgers embedded in the crust. The whole thing looks like a grease-filled sunflower. [More]

Redundant Currency Symbol Menace Spreads To Canada

Redundant Currency Symbol Menace Spreads To Canada

We’re sorry, Canada. We share a dominant language and many aspects of our culture, but we didn’t mean to export the horror of redundant currency symbols. That’s the grammar abomination where someone uses both the symbol and word for a currency in the same sentence: for example, “$15 dollars.” After our rant on the subject earlier this week, reader Daniel pointed out its appearance in a current Pizza Hut promo in Canada.

Some Poor Guy Has To Stand Outside Pizza Hut HQ “Protecting” This Royal Baby Tie-In Offer

Sign-twirlers and flyer-distributors in sandwich boards are often viewed as occupying the lowest rung of the advertising ladder. But those guys have nothing on the poor sucker who has to stand outside Pizza Hut HQ in 97 degree weather dressed in faux royal guard garb — all to “protect” some royal baby cash-in promo. [More]

Pizza Hut Tapes Note To Box Begging For Perfect Survey Scores

Filling out customer service surveys is scary. If some managers are to be believed, giving any score but an 11 out of 10 is effectively stealing food out of the mouths of employees’ families. Getting impossibly perfect stores is so important for some stores that they’ve resorted to bribing customers with coupons or freebies. That’s the case with Jared’s local Pizza Hut, which taped a note begging for perfect scores to his pizza box. [More]

Pizza Hut Managers: Worker Ogling Porn On Laptop Wasn’t On The Clock, So Who Cares?

What you do in your personal time is totally your own business — collect toy ponies, worship at a Bill Pullman shrine, whatever floats your boat — but even if you’re not on the clock, you probably shouldn’t indulge in your favorite porn peccadilloes at your place of employment. Pizza Hut customers in Virginia are hot under the collar after claiming they caught a worker ogling naked ladies on his laptop at the eatery. [More]

Pizza Hut Delivers Too-Small Pizza Missing 4 Toppings, Shrugs

WC ordered a large and very delicious pizza from Pizza Hut. It was a huge Panormous pizza with four toppings. The pizza arrived with one of the toppings, no mozzarella cheese, and in a much smaller size. Well, no problem: a case like that means that he’ll get a refund, a free replacement pizza, or maybe even both. Right? [More]

Pizza Hut Gives Gift Cards To First 100 People To Tweet Photos Of Their Lame Christmas Presents

From ill-fitting ugly sweaters to that 50 States Coin Collecting Starter Kit, there are almost limitless options for what can count as a “lame” Christmas gift. The one thing they all have in common is you don’t want’em, and they’re a waste of space. But how about pizza? Do you want some pizza, would that ease the sting of disappointment? Pizza Hut thinks so, and is offering people gift cards to lessen the dissatisfaction that can occur in recipients of awful gifts. [More]

This 2-Ring Circus With A Cherry On Top Is Actually A Pizza That People Can Eat

At what first glance appears to be one of those pre-made deli trays your office puts out when they force you to have a meeting through lunch (or your neighbors give you when your mother-in-law passes away), is actually a pizza. Or at least that’s what Pizza Hut Singapore alleges. [More]

In A World With Bacon Shaving Cream, We Are Unsurprised That Pizza Hut Perfume Exists

At first I was like, “Eww, Pizza Hut perfume?!?!? What is this world coming to?” and then I remembered that there’s some bacon shaving cream makings its way to me rightthisveryminute and I was like, “Oh, of course.” And it’s in Canada so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to splash a bit of that on to mingle with the bacon cream. Unlikely, but perhaps not impossible. I’m talking to you, Canadian readers. [More]

Pizza Deliverer: If You Live In A $650K House And Don’t Tip, There’s Something Wrong With You

Tipping waiters at a restaurant is relatively easy — so long as you know how to calculate the standard 15-20% — but tipping for delivery is always a topic of much debate, as there are factors involved like the cost of the meal, the weather, how long you had to wait, and how much was being carried.
